    Default INTPs and Appearance

    It seems that most people would agree that INTPs don't care very much about their appearance. Does the fact that I do very much possibly debunk the validity of my INTP-ness? If I am actually and ENTP, would that change anything in this regard?

    Edit: My bad, this should be moved to the NT-specific section.

    Thread so moved.

    Also, I don't think attention to one's own appearance has much to do with type. I know some INTPs who don't give a crap about their appearance, and others, like my brother, who take pride in looking respectable and put-together.

    Thanks :P

    But mine extends as far as to an aspect most will probably consider Fi-related. I want to dress to how I believe I should look, and how I want to be perceived of. I intentionally try to fit my appearance to be as eclectic as I think that I am.

    Meh, I probably don't pay enough attention to my appearance.

    Caring (to an extreme) about your appearance isn't a typical INTP thing. I somewhat care about my appearance and how I look and I'm an INTP, so I suppose it could happen, but my concern with such things isn't to an extreme. It's about average when compared to how concerned others are, but it stands out as the typical INTP would normally not be that concerned.

    The picture on your profile page has a feminine, emo, Fi look, but that doesn't necessarily mean you're an INFP.

    I don't care as much as most people seem to but I do care to some level. I want to look presentable. I care about my hygiene. I guess I do want to look somewhat attractive but I don't want to spend a whole of time on it when there's more interesting things in life. So I tend to avoid optional things like make-up and manicures and style my hair so it requires a minimum of maintenance.

    I knew one INTP who was a great dresser. That man had style. Understated. Classy. Offbeat.

    I don't think that is a trait of only INTPs. Not looking after appearance can be a sign of an emotionally unhealthy person, but with MBTI I guess any of the intuitive types will be prone to not paying attention to appearances, especially Si/Se inferior types. It really depends on any individual though. Everyone's personality traits and habits are subjective, if you know what I mean.

    I mean, I do like that look. I think mentally I'm very masculine but I want to be physically balanced and not disgusting, essentially. I do also rank highly for developed Fi on many functions tests, but ultimately far prefer thinking to feeling for decisions. Would my use of Fi be considered unhealthy as an INTP.
